    Pelindaba Lavendar Farms

    by paulscuba Updated Jul 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a very fragrant lavendar farm. They have many lavendar products and some plants that can be purchased. We were visiting a little early in the season so they didn't have tours running. The farm tours don't start until approx. the 2nd week of July and not sure when they stop running them. If you are going later in August you can always check with them.

    See the incredible view from the top of Mt. Young

    The hike to the top of Mt. Young is really enjoyable, and not too many tourist know about it. I think it takes about half an hour to hike up the trail, and the view from the top is incredible. You can see Vancouver Island across the strait, the Olympic peninsula to the south and lots of water and islands all around. You can also see Roche Harbor and Wescott Bay right below you. If you like hiking you can go down the other side of the mountain into the Roche Harbor resevoir lands and there are lots of trails to explore.
    Take Roche Harbor Road to West Valley Rd. Near British Camp there is a metal gate on your left hand side. Park on the side of the road and hike up the trail. (If you hike down the trail you end up at British Camp.) I don't think it is marked, but in the summer time there are usually several vehicles parked there. Have fun!

    Mt. Young. This is just across the road from British Camp. A short 10 minute hike up the hill will bring you to spectacular views of Roche Harbor, the Gulf Islands, Vancouver Island and the San Juans. Absolutely breathtaking.
